The signs were placed at the entrances to Rhubarb Bridge which is currently closed for resurfacing and waterproofing.

Cyclists were left confused and angry after seeing the signs recently introduced, and when contacted by the Peterborough Telegraph a spokesperson for Peterborough City Council said: “The ‘Cyclists Dismount’ signs at the bottom of the ramps were installed in error. They will be removed before the bridge is re-opened.”

Rhubarb Bridge is a popular foot and cycle bridge over the A47/A15 junction, near Brotherhood Shopping Park.
